Product advantages

  • Hydrogen determination with heat extraction technique for determination of residual hydrogen
  • High-capacity thermal conductivity cell
  • Easy calibration with standards or gas dosing

The new ELEMENTRAC OH-p 2 is a powerful and robust elemental analyzer for measurement of oxygen and hydrogen concentrations in inorganic samples like steel, iron, copper or ceramics. The highly sensitive NDIR and thermal conductivity detectors reliably detect element concentrations from low ppm content to high percentages.

The ELEMENTRAC OH-p 2 elemental analyzer meets or exceeds the requirements of all relevant international standards such as ASTM E 1019 or DIN EN 3976.

Typical sample materials : alloys, aluminum, ashes, carbides, cast iron, copper, ferroalloys, iron, metals, ores, refractory metals, silicon, steel

Operation and Analysis Process

Step 1: Logging the sample into the ELEMENTS software

The sample ID is logged into the software and the weight is automatically transferred (see step 2).

Step 2: Weighing and introduction of sample into the port

The ELEMENTRAC OH-p 2 analyzes volumes from a few mg up to 2 grams safely and precisely. Rod-shaped or granular samples can be applied directly. For the elemental analysis of powders, a capsule is recommended which does not have to be sealed.

Step 3: Analysis

The empty graphite crucible is then placed on the lower electrode and the elemental analysis is started via the ELEMENTS software. The software controls all subsequent process steps.

Step 4: Data output and export

120 to 180 seconds after the analysis has started, the measured concentrations are available for export as a report or via LIMS.
